Nikki's therapist, his younger than me, super healthy therapist, had a heart attack and passed away this weekend. I can't wrap my mind around it. She has been so helpful working everything out, and such a huge part of our lives (Nikkii's directly, mine through the effect she has on our life) that i just am floored. So far Nikki is okay, but I don't know how this works for a patient. If my former therapist had just died, it would have really messed me up, I can't even imagine. And she was so sweet.
I know rationally that if we moved, a new therapist search was in the near future, and nothing we feel is anything like what her family feels, but the finality and suddenness of it is just stunning. And of course now I"m worried for Nikki, having that taken away so suddenly can't be good for him.
